Reducing our carbon hoofprint

To the Editor:
Greetings from the North Pole! As the holidays approach, I wanted to share some exciting changes happening in Christmas preparations this year.

In the spirit of embracing sustainability, I am delighted to announce that our beloved reindeer will be retiring to a beautiful sanctuary. They have served tirelessly, guiding my sleigh through snow and stars for years, and it’s time for them to graze peacefully and bask in the care they deserve.

In their place, we will be introducing a new, eco-friendly electric sleigh. This change aligns with our commitment to reducing our carbon hoofprint and taking steps towards a greener, more sustainable future.

But that's not all! This year, I’ve made a personal choice to embrace a vegan lifestyle. In doing so, I encourage families around the world to join me in spreading kindness to all beings. Instead of the traditional cookies and milk, I kindly ask children to leave out vegan cookies and plant-based milk.

I understand change can be unexpected, but I hope these adjustments will inspire a sense of togetherness for our planet and its inhabitants. Christmas is a time of love, generosity, and making the world brighter for all.
